International Political Economy: research clusters in the Department of International Relations at LSE International Political Economy: research clusters in the Department of International Relations at LSE

This cluster explores international political economy: the relationship between states and markets in a global context.

Research and teaching in this cluster works at multiple levels of analysis and draws on an array of theoretic and methodological approaches from several disciplines. Both historical and contemporary questions are addressed across a range of issues including: trade, migration, global environmental politics, international economic organisations, economic diplomacy, international finance, foreign investment, exchange rates, and monetary relations.

The group has regional expertise in Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Latin America. The last several years, the IPE group has run a speaker series in collaboration with colleagues in Government and at Oxford University. IPE faculty plan to strengthen and further institutionalise this seminar series in the coming years.
